Rachel’s Ginger Beer
When you just spent two hours with your tourist friends at Pike Place Market walking up and down the same aisle looking at homemade potholders and feel like you’re ready to kill something, take a breather. Rachel’s Ginger Beer is a funky soda shop in the middle of Pike Place, but also the perfect escape from it. And, if forgoing the traditional ginger beer for a boozy spiked mule will help you get through waiting 25 minutes for your friends to finish Instragramming themselves posing with strangers’ chewed gum, then so be it. Try the pink guava or cucumber tarragon flavors if the original is too boring for your advanced palate.
